    What's the plural of Fleaz?

    Is it like sheep where it's sheep regardless of the number of sheep? Or is it Fleazes? That's sounds too much like Gollum. Fleazs? That either sounds like Fleazes or Fleaz so that can't be right. I guess it's just Fleaz whether there are one or a whole circus.

    The way I see it;

    1 is ‘a fleaz’.
    2 is ‘some fleaz’.
    3 or more is an infestation of fleaz.

    Alternatively, 1 fleaz, 2 fleazies.

    Oh yeah. I was going to post a joke here about time travel, but most of you didn’t think it was very funny.

    Plural of adz is adzes so fleazes. I know, I’m no fun, and English is too inconsistent for my reasoning to hold.

    Yeah, this has bugged me too, when writing about Fleaz and the other bugz in forum posts. A lot of their applications are such that they'd typically be used in pairs, so I always assumed the product was named in the plural. I struggled more with what term to use when specifically discussing just one. "... a Dutch Flyz ..." is just hard for me to type.

    Fleazi, obviously.

    I dusted the travel trailer I purchased when I was working away from home in OR with diatomaceous earth after I found out it came with bed bugs as an added blessing. This was after disposing of the "new" queen size pillow top and steaming the place. Horrendous experience that left an indelible impression regarding bed bugs and why I refuse to stay at motels, preferring the comforts of my pickup topper, hammock, or tent when on the road.
